## What are sampling methods?

In a statistical study, sampling methods refer to how we select members from the population to be in the study.

If a sample isn't randomly selected, it will probably be biased in some way and the data may not be representative of the population.

There are many ways to select a sample—some good and some bad.

### Bad ways to sample

**Convenience sample**: The researcher chooses a sample that is readily available in some non-random way.

Example—A researcher polls people as they walk by on the street.

Why it's probably biased: The location and time of day and other factors may produce a biased sample of people.

**Voluntary response sample:**The researcher puts out a request for members of a population to join the sample, and people decide whether or not to be in the sample.

Example—A TV show host asks his viewers to visit his website and respond to an online poll.

Why it's probably biased: People who take the time to respond tend to have similarly strong opinions compared to the rest of the population.

PRACTICE PROBLEM 1

A restaurant leaves comment cards on all of its tables and encourages customers to participate in a brief survey to learn about their overall experience.

### Good ways to sample

**Simple random sample:**Every member and set of members has an equal chance of being included in the sample. Technology, random number generators, or some other sort of chance process is needed to get a simple random sample.

Example—A teachers puts students' names in a hat and chooses without looking to get a sample of students.

Why it's good: Random samples are usually fairly representative since they don't favor certain members.

**Stratified random sample:**The population is first split into groups. The overall sample consists of some members from every group. The members from each group are chosen randomly.

Example—A student council surveys

100 100 100

students by getting random samples of

25 25 25 freshmen, 25 25 25 sophomores, 25 25 25 juniors, and 25 25 25 seniors.

Why it's good: A stratified sample guarantees that members from each group will be represented in the sample, so this sampling method is good when we want some members from every group.

**Cluster random sample:**The population is first split into groups. The overall sample consists of every member from some of the groups. The groups are selected at random.

Example—An airline company wants to survey its customers one day, so they randomly select

5 5 5

flights that day and survey every passenger on those flights.

Why it's good: A cluster sample gets every member from some of the groups, so it's good when each group reflects the population as a whole.

**Systematic random sample:**Members of the population are put in some order. A starting point is selected at random, and every

n^{\text{th}} n th

n, start superscript, start text, t, h, end text, end superscript

member is selected to be in the sample.

Example—A principal takes an alphabetized list of student names and picks a random starting point. Every

20^{\text{th}} 20 th

20, start superscript, start text, t, h, end text, end superscript

student is selected to take a survey.

PRACTICE PROBLEM 1

Each student at a school has a student identification number. Counselors have a computer generate

50 50 50

random identification numbers and those students are asked to take a survey.

I'm pretty sure it's a cluster. Because it's all the students from the randomly selected classes, not x people from each class.

I have to design a study and I devide population into 3 age groups. I randomly ask people to answer the survey but only one of three groups are my target and I only take the data of the targeted group. So which sampling method is this case belong to?

Verified answer PROBABILITY Suppose that an \overline{X} X

control chart with two-sigma limits is used to control a process. Find the probability that a false out-of-control signal will be produced on the next sample. Compare this with the corresponding probability for the chart with three-sigma limits and discuss. Comment on when you would prefer to use two-sigma limits instead of three-sigma limits.
